Johannesburg - Hundreds of people gathered outside the Klerksdorp Magistrate's Court on Wednesday for a bail application by murder accused MEC China Dodovu, the SABC reported.

Dodovu and several others are accused of killing ANC official Obuti Chika.

Those present divided themselves into two groups.

The African National Congress, ANC Women's League and ANC Youth League group wanted North West local government MEC Dodovu's co-accused to be denied bail.

The second group supported the co-accused and wanted their bail applications to be granted.

Police were keeping watch.

Dodovu was arrested during a PEC meeting on Monday in connection with the murder of ANC regional secretary Chika, 33, who was shot dead in the driveway of his Klerksdorp home on 14 December.

The other accused are Jeffrey Letuka, 28, North West provincial ANC Youth League chairman Papiki Baboile, 27, ward secretary Paul Molomonyane, 33, councillor Itumeleng Molebatsi, 50, municipal worker William Malefo, 46, and taxi driver Kgotso Kali, 36.

Chika was the regional secretary of the Dr Kenneth Kaunda district at the time of his death.
